    Pasting a section from a textbook in a post

    This is not strictly a "latex" post but I think this forum is the best place for my question.

    Question is as follows:

    How do you place/insert a section of a textbook in the middle of a post?

    Most people scan the image and then upload it. Failing that uploading a picture obtained from a camera (like a phone). You can then upload it using MHF or to an image hosting site and link from there. AFAIK there is no way you can get it to render in latex direct from the scanner

    LaTeX is best for short passages and obviously we'd prefer it if everyone rendered everything in tex but that's not reasonable for huge pieces of text
